So what did it say?

I meant that I saw how the SG table worked. I didn’t fill it out (if that’s what your asking) since I don’t annotate length of putts. But, seeing how the SG is determined, I’ll start.

Can you remember your round?

as best I can estimate. Again, I’ll start writing them down moving forward. I’d be interested to see how things progress. I appreciate the tools

Nice! You said your lag putting has improved, but I bet your start lines have, too. Seems like you’re making more putts inside 6’ than you were at Royal New Kent.

I'm somewhat dubious of their numbers (2.16 from 20 feet?), but still, you gained strokes on your handicap, it says.

Easier to let the face return to where it was with a good, fluid, relaxed putting stroke.

well, for #1, I was very nervous playing with guys for that first time and that generally shows up in my putting...so while I normally don't 3-putt 5 times with an additional 4-putt, it's not surprising to me when I putt that way when I'm nervous. Putting is my most inconsistent part of the game. My buddy and I play for a bragging rights trophy couple of times/year & I struggle with my putting on those rounds (but on rounds that "don't matter").  I think I need to learn to "enjoy/embrace the pressure" as well as improve my technical skills to minimize that ridiculousness.

True & my swing was more fluid, not stabbing at the ball, which I found immediately helpful for distance control.

Yes, well I did try to get it in your head that there was nothing to be nervous about. I’m sure you realized that we’re all a bunch of clowns 😜

First day using it. Some strokes were intentionally “off” as I was trying see how to change the numbers. Interesting. With some work, I think this will most definitely improve my consistency at each length of stroke

@iacas, I should be closer to 1.8:1 on all of these?

Better today in the office with my consistency and learning how to adjust how big of a pendulum to make for various putt lengths. Most of the putts recorded in the session were done at 30ft. Still sizable variations in backstroke times, but I honestly think some of the variance was due to me making adjusts to length of pendulum arc to get distance right.

FWIW you can adjust those green bars to be reflective of what you find to be your putting style.

The defaults are just what they assume to be "good" but I find them to be a bit too broad in some cases, and too high for tempo (2.2 is veeeeerrrrrrryyyyyyyy slow).

not what great is, but my comfortable BS/FS ratio is 1.7-1.9 and my goal is to minimize that window to1.7-1.8 consistently so as to have more predictable response on the course. I've been looking more at the times as you suggested by there is obviously variation due to length of putt, where as my tempo (metronome pace) is ideally consistent despite putt length, correct? I expect I'm using the term tempo incorrectly, but you get what I mean

ps. With my working on the pendulums, and the Blast metrics, do you still wants to see putting stroke for critiquing or go back to full swing posts while continuing the putting work "off camera?" I'm happy to do whatever you feel would be the greatest benefit

Two quick comments:

  • Just wanted to clarify something: you're saying I suggested that you look at the times rather than the ratio, not that I suggested that my times were what most people should strive to achieve, yes?
  • The times should stay about the same regardless of the length of the putt (outside of maybe five feet).

If the times are the same, the rhythm (the ratio, what they mistakenly call the tempo) is the same. 0.5/0.3 is going to be the same rhythm and the same ratio every time. But if it's a 10-footer it'll have a slower tempo than a 40-footer.

Remember the "tempo" is the speed of the stroke, as in the putter head speed. A longer putt should have a faster tempo but the same rhythm. More here.

So, yeah, we're gonna have to work to overcome the fact that they basically mess up and call the rhythm the "tempo." The measure of "tempo" in the app might best be shown by the putter head speed at impact.

thanks!

did you see my ps on previous post or did you respond before I made the edit?

    • Welcome to TST.  Congratulations on breaking 80.  I wish you many rounds in the 70s!
    • I don't really know your handicap, and this may affect things.  My advice if I were a caddy for a professional might differ. * Opponent is OB is great, but I think the right play in the first situation is to hit the longest shot you can keep in play, just as if you were getting two strokes here.  Can you keep your driver likely in play?  If so, hit it.  I am not a believer that fairway woods off the tee are more accurate anyway, at least for our level.  And at my handicap, trying something like "hit 5-iron, 7-iron" to imitate a long drive is just as likely to mess up. But I'm a generally accurate driver, particularly for my handicap. * Go for the safe target.  Opponents are likely to make par and unless you're dormie or near dormie, you don't need to win this hole.    No one at any level really makes 20 footers with any regularity anyway. * Accurate hitter goes first.  Once they are safely in play, again hitting the longest club they can likely get into play, then the bomber can go for it.  If not, the bomber has to put one in play.  
    • Typically, when I golf, I am playing non-competitive rounds with friends or family, and focus on shooting as low a score as possible. Once a year, I have a competitive event with friends (mock Ryder Cup), where we play fourball, foursomes, and match play. There are some obvious situations where you make different strategic decisions than you would in a stroke play round (if your fourball partner is in for 5, no sense lagging a putt for 4, for example). I have a few hypotheticals below that are more marginal, curious how TST would approach these and hoping people might have others to think about. -Singles match opponent OB on a long par 4, standard play is driver but there is trouble both left and right -Alternate shot partner is a poor bunker player, opponents have a 20-footer for birdie. Flag is directly behind a bunker, safe target leaves 40 feet with a good shot -Risk reward drivable par 4 in fourball, general approach when one partner is a bomber and one is accurate
